Hi All,

I recently picked up a 2013 SLK 250 CDI AMG Sport. It's a big change from my previous 2009 CLS 350 CDI Grand Edition, but I'm loving the handling. The CLS was a boat by comparison...

It's Obsidian Black, with Black interior. Options include Airscarf, Heated Seats & Parktronic. I'm particularly impressed with Airscarf - had the roof down last Monday & was driving in shirtsleeves!

Hope to be an active participant on here, as I am on MBClub.co.uk

Adam.

Some tips to make your visit here more enjoyable:
If you haven’t, please use the 'search' feature at the top right of the page for your questions as they have probably been asked before. Remember, ‘Search’ is your friend.
If you wish to become PM (Private Message) capable, you need 15 posts. To get those 15 posts quickly, just go to the ‘New members introduce yourself here’ section and welcome enough new members to obtain your needed posts to PM.
Want to post a picture? Start a new thread or make a post, click ‘edit’, click on the ‘paper clip’ or ‘advanced’ and/or ‘manage attachments’ then ‘choose file’ then ‘upload’ and ‘submit’! If Iphone pics, you need to rename any additional pics as Iphone names its pics all the same, image.jpg.
Want to ‘like’ or thank’ someone’s comments? Use the ‘like’ button to the right or the ‘Thanks’ button, bottom right of any post you like. This saves you having to comment.
New members should be aware that the 'New Posts' link next to the 'Search' link top right of the info bar is a great way to see all of the posts you have missed since you were on the forum last. Remember to click 'mark forums read' under ‘quick links’ when you leave.
Also vote or enter our Ride of the Month competition: ROTM Submissions & Voting - Mercedes Benz SLK Forum

Hi Adam, and welcome to SLKWorld.com from the UK Midlands - Thanks for joining us!

Ad Myk already suggested, we have quite a few members in the UK that like to meet up from time to time. If you're interested in joining us sometime, just keep an eye on the UK Region section, as we post meeting plans there!

There's a summary post that I maintain for all UK meets here, and links to examples and pictures from this year's past meets are available here.

Finally, we also recently started plotting where our UK members are - check out the thread for that here: SLKWorld UK & Ireland Members and Meeting Points Map

Thanks
Dave

Hi there, welcome to the site my friend. Nice car you have there. Is that a Diesel model? Reading the Mercedes enthusiast magazine, the Diesel variations seem to be the way to go for good power and MPG. Anyway, welcome to the site. Kevin
